Keep your Franchises Compliant with our Corporate Field Audits
Consistency is an important consideration when running a franchise in order to maintain the proper brand and reputation. Many details go into achieving consistency, but a lot of people tend to forget about the elements of consistency behind-the-scenes when it comes to auditing.
Food Safety audits play a vital role in terms of quality management as well as compliance management for food businesses. The goal is to ensure that the business and the team are following proper guidelines and recommendations to avoid any kind of cross-contamination or spread of food-borne diseases. According to Global Food and Safety Resource, “audits are a crucial component of maintaining food safety standards and certification”.
Auditing for food businesses ensures that poor and unsafe operations are identified and put to an end so they cannot harm the customers or the staff. Performing a self-audit provides the additional benefit of preventing improper operations from tainting the brand’s reputation. If one location is determined to have unfit operations, then the entire franchise is labelled such as well. This is why it is important to protect your franchise and ensure the operations at each location are fool proof.
Conducting corporate field-audits under one consistent standard and software will help maintain and monitor food safety operations that can be implemented across the franchise. There are a couple of key aspects to consider when conducting an audit, like brand standard, cleanliness, maintenance, food safety and etc which all fall under having a consistent guideline.
